Founder Rov Dosanjh launched Rayn Properties in 2007, with his son Arjin coming aboard as Administrative and Financial Manager

VICTORIA – Started by Rov Dosanjh in 2007, Rayn Properties Ltd. was created with the hopes of building a proud legacy he could someday pass onto his children. His years of working in the skilled trades provided the building blocks to pursue that dream.

“I first began learning the ins-and-outs of the industry in the late ’80s, working alongside skilled family members, training in the basics of house building and framing,” recalls Rov.

While he eventually secured a full-time position at the Victoria Police Department in the early ’90s, he never lost his passion for the construction industry, building houses here and there each year in his free time. In the early aughts, Rov and close friend Joe Samra created Dosam Developments, building several custom and spec homes in greater Victoria. Eventually, Rov was ready to strike out on his own, with a focus on custom homes. Rayn Properties was born.

Today, Rov is a general contractor, managing one-hundred percent of his projects from start to finish. A family business, Rov has the support of his son Arjin Dosanjh, who works as Rayn’s Administrative and Financial Manager, as well as apprenticing as a project manager, absorbing the skills and industry knowledge of his father.

Arjin grew up around the home industry thanks to time spent on job sites with Rov. He eventually developed a vision of working in the building industry, but chose to dedicate himself to getting a business degree first.

“I graduated from the University of Victoria Gustavson School of Business program, with the goal of understanding the backend works of operating a small business,” explains Arjin.”I’ve now taken the responsibility of managing projects while I continue to get direct experience with the process of home-building working with my dad.”

Together, they have proved a formidable team over the years, with multiple CARE awards wins under their belt and numerous other accolades and acknowledgments of their projects across Vancouver Island. Both Rov and Arjin take pride in the work put in to earn Rayn’s reputation.

“Rayn Properties does more than just build a home from a set of plans,” elaborates Rov. “We are there for our clients from the very beginning and guide them throughout the entire process from start to finish. We help clients locate an ideal property, explain financial expectations, provide professional references, assist in selecting materials and finishes, and work closely with them to build their dream home.”

Arjin elaborates.

“My father provides clients with honest opinions and suggestions based on his years of experience. Luxury homes are not necessarily about spending the most money. He believes there are many cost-effective ways to build a beautiful home and create an eye-catching product. He will educate his clients on the latest products and what will work best for their home and lifestyle, offering quality results without cutting corners.”

Rayn Properties provides these results for clients by also having strong, lasting relationships with their subcontractors, working together to meet and exceed client expectations. It’s a legacy they are proud of, particularly cementing that legacy in BC.

Says Rov, “We are honoured and proud to live in this beautiful province, on this breathtaking island. We strive to build quality homes that fit into each of the surrounding communities. We continually seek out new technological advancements in energy-saving and environmentally conscious construction methods to make sure what we build here never takes away from that beauty.” –
